Stakeholder Survey Report

This year, we took the very first stakeholder survey to invite feedback and suggestions from our partners, event attendees, speakers, and the wider community of storytellers. Survey findings demonstrate tremendous appreciation of the dignified storytelling initiative and a collective hope for it to evolve into a full-fledged platform offering research, knowledge-sharing and capacity building.
